On 24th April the battalion was defending Villers Bretoneux against a German attack: “All was ready to receive the advancing waves of German infantry, but it must be admitted that some of the stoutest hearts were filled with something approaching dismay when out of the fog, at a distance of 40 to 50 yards, loomed the weird forms of German tanks...there is no doubt that the sudden appearance of these monsters shook our defence for a moment, and the men fell back a short distance. They remained perfectly under control, and were rapidly rallied by their officers a short distance in rear of the front trench, after which the German infantry, advancing in three waves close behind the tanks, were hotly engaged with rifle and Lewis gun fire, which inflicted heavy loss on them...The first news of what was occurring in front was received at Battalion Headquarters from Morton in a message timed 6.30am: ‘Tanks have crossed front line trenches, front line has fallen back, have rallied them at Company HQ line’. Steadily the tanks pressed our line back though our retirement was carried out gradually and at ghastly loss to the German infantry ...The heavy casualties sustained this day in ‘missing’ were due to the fact that in retirement the Battalion was forced to leave many men, who might otherwise have been saved, in the enemy's hands”. The casualties included 24 killed, 113 wounded, and 205 missing. Lance Corporal Short was killed in action.

Additional Information: Born in Carshalton and lived at 4 Alexander Cottages, Sutton. Was a storekeeper before joining the army in November 1915. Was killed in action. “I beg to report that the patrol under Lieutenant Davis which left my lines on the night of the 4/5th October and was reported by me on the morning of the 5th as missing has since returned. Lieutenant Davis is slightly wounded; one O.R killed, two O.R slightly wounded. This patrol consisting of one Officer and 3 O.Rs left…on the night of the 4th/5th October at 12.30am and proceeded to the enemy’s lines…for the purpose of keeping the enemy wire which had been cut by our trench mortars under observation and to prevent it being repaired; also if possible, to capture a prisoner or bring back an identification. On reaching the gap in the wire Lieutenant Davis discovered that some coils of fresh concertina wire had been placed close to the gap. He anticipated that this had been so placed for the purpose of repairing the gap, so waited on the chance of capturing a prisoner from a working party. He heard no sign of life in the enemy’s trenches, and as daylight was approaching he decided to withdraw. On reaching the neighbourhood of our wire a machine gun opened fire, and inflicted the casualties mentioned. Lieutenant Davis being uncertain of his whereabouts, withdrew the party into a neighbouring shell-hole and awaited daylight. They remained there without food or water until 7pm when it was dark enough to return to our lines. The man killed has been located today and will be brought in during the night. I consider the conduct of Lieutenant Davis, under very trying circumstances, is very praiseworthy, for the coolness and resource shown by him in a sudden emergency. He states that the men behaved excellently under the very trying circumstances in which they were placed. 6/10/16 W.Newton Lieutenant Colonel Commanding 13th Battalion East Surrey Regiment.” His name also appears on the ‘Willie Bird’ cross.

Additional Information: Trenches south east of Polygon Wood - “At 6am the battalion advanced to the assault…only slight opposition was offered to our advance which proceeded quickly except on the centre of B company where a concrete fortress put up a show of resistance which was soon overcome…The enemy artillery maintained a continuous barrage over the whole area captured until 4pm. Great difficulty was experienced in clearing the wounded. At 9am the enemy made a counter attack on the right which was however dispersed by our artillery fire. The enemy shelled the back area throughout the night thus rendering communications and removal of casualties extremely difficult. Casualties Officers 3 killed 6 wounded, O.R. 49 killed 184 wounded, 19 missing.” Brother of Thomas Stracey.

CWGC Notes: Son of Henry and Mabel Sophia Thompson, of 9 Station Rd, Carshalton
                    
Additional Information: Strangely, in Soldiers Died in The Great War, his name is given as Robert Arthur Thompson. It seems that for some reason he gave different forenames when he enlisted. In an even more bizarre twist, his memorial plaque (sent to families of soldiers who died) was dug up in a field near Flitton, Bedfordshire, by a metal detectorist. This plaque also gave his name as Robert Arthur, but quite how it ended up buried in the field is a mystery. In April 1917 the battalion was in Arras – “The night was quiet, we found large working parties. Our Artillery Fire opened at 6.15am, bombardment was heavy but not intense. Enemy shelled Arras during the morning, one shell burst in Museum [trench] burying some men of C Company. 6 ORs killed and 26 wounded, we also had 4 men killed and 3 wounded by a shell when they were fetching rations.” Brother of Eric Thompson.

Communication was poor and many of the officers leading the attack were killed or wounded. Although they managed to advance as far as the German third line, reinforcements could not be brought up due to the enemy artillery bombardment. Coupled with a lack of hand grenades the remaining men were eventually driven out of the German trenches and back to the British lines. Casualties amounted to 18 killed, 123 wounded, and 33 missing.

CWGC Notes: Son of the late Mr. and Mrs. C. Watkinson
                        
Additional Information: The Surrey Recruitment Register states that Edward was born in Carshalton and was a warehouseman. It also gives his age as 19 years 2 months when he enlisted on 1st September 1914. This would make him 21 at the time of his death and seems to be corroborated by the 1901 census, which shows that he was 6 years old. He was killed in action during an action north of Ovillers, 12th August – “Zero was at 10.30pm when the artillery opened at intense bombardment on the enemy’s lines until 10.33pm when our companies assaulted the positions...Both our front line companies went out under cover of our bombardment and worked up as close to our barrage as possible. B Company on assaulting were met with machine gun fire and the enemy put up a barrage of bombs all along their trench, rendering it impossible to get near, the men having to get into shell holes and remain where they were...No more information has been received of D Company...as far as can be ascertained [they] worked too much to the left...[their] supports never found any trace of the front platoons except a few wounded. All men who saw into the German trench agree that the enemy was in great strength in his trenches and that many had overcoats or packs on, so it is thought that a relief may have been in progress. The ground was exceedingly difficult to keep direction on, on account of the huge craters caused by our bombardment and trench mortars.” There were 169 casualties/missing.
